Who Makes The Most Use of Wearable Health Devices?

Nowadays, people use advanced health devices to keep on updated with their health conditions. Many of them just use them without any concern but, on the other hand, 80% of them are conscious about acknowledging their health issues and desperate to overcome them.

To find out the ratio between people in the U.S. who use any kind of wearable health device due to the imminence of cardiovascular diseases to those who are not dependent on them, a survey of health information was conducted titled "Health Information National Trends Survey" (HINTS) and the report was sent to an American Scientific Session of 2022.

According to the report, there are some factors due to which people are incapable to use health wearables; the major factor is their age, then comes their education (many people are unknown of the significance of these tiny gadgets with a lot of benefits) and the third one is their monthly income (as some people could barely afford living and are having families at their back to raise). If these factors fall in the favor of people, their urge to use health devices could be fulfilled and they could easily be able to purchase wearable health devices as safety measures for the betterment of their health.
"An estimated 3.6 million people with cardiovascular disease and 34.4 million people at risk of cardiovascular disease in the U.S. used wearables. That translates to only 18% of all people with cardiovascular disease, and 26% of all people at risk for cardiovascular disease. In comparison, 29% of the total adult U.S. population used wearable devices."

The study further explains the advantages of the devices for instance; wristwatches and fitness bands are helpful for a person in; self-monitoring, measuring blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol levels and with the assistance of health wearables, the root of the disease can be detected. In accordance, an individual could ask doctors freely for a cure as he or she would be aware of his or her cardiovascular illness. The pieces of advice from an expert can help to resolve drastic health casualties.

According to the researchers of HINT, there should be an accessible distribution of wearable health devices for people who could not afford them and are extremely needy. In this regard, a proper funding system should be introduced officially, so that every individual from the lower level to big organizations and corporations from the upper level could contribute to this cause.

A nation is an asset of any state or country and it is the responsibility of the state’s government to provide quality health to its people by arranging good health-maintaining awareness programs and establishing fundraising campaigns for the distribution of worthy health devices among the deserved ones. Cardiovascular diseases are common all around the world without any boundary of age class, color, gender, or religion. Other key stats from the study includes:
"Only 12% of people with cardiovascular disease older than 65 years of age used wearable devices, even though it is estimated half of all people with cardiovascular disease are older than age 65. In comparison, 17% of people with cardiovascular disease ages 50 to 64 years reported using wearables, and 33% of those in the 18 to 49-year age group with diagnosed cardiovascular disease used wearables. While 22% of all people at risk of heart disease are 65 years or older, only 14% of elderly patients at risk of heart disease used wearable devices."
